in his own defense. his attorneys have stayed tight-lipped so far but there is speculation that bulger will want to testify. he's facing a slew of charges, including 19 counts of murder. if he's found guilty of even some at age 83, he'll likely spend the rest of his life in prison. robert fitzpatrick wrote a book about trying to stop bulger. this case has been full of fireworks. deborah feyerick has been live. bring us up to date on this case. >> his lawyers have asked that the jury be sequestered during deliberations. prosecutors are against it and the judge is going to have to decide that. it's still not clear whether bulger is going to testify. they are going to testify over the period of two witnesses. key among them, a mother whose daughter was killed by bulger and her ex-boyfriend. she's going to be called to testify that her daughter was being sexually molested by the man and therefore he had a greater motive to kill her. also on this list of witnesses is a crime associate who is likely to take the fifth. the reason is that he was actually implicated in one of the murders. now,
of the big activities was the defense spending bill. what is the headlines coming out of that discussion? guest: the headline has to do with the national security agency. it was a very close vote. it shows how divided the house -200epresentatives, 217 five, to keep allowing the nsa to collect telephone records. host: explain it to those that are not following it closely. many: i don't imagine too people do not understand it. this is the national security agency that was found to be collecting phone calls. they are randomly collecting phone calls under court orders from a secret court. certainly a lot of people do not want to be listened to. this was all covered by edward snowden, now sitting in the moscow airport. to stop a vote to try this practice, which was authorized by congress as part of the patriot act after 9/11. host: the amendment did not survive? guest: it did not survive. it does not explain how that would happen. host: who supported this amendment and who opposed it? we saw a lot of things that you probably did not see before. we have liberal democrats who did not like the g

, the department of defense at the top of the list, in making sure that those dollars go to american companies. but there are circumstances in which the buy-american provisions are waived. there are a number of ways that you can waive those provisions, but it's important for us to have full transparency and disclosure when the department of transportation and when fhwa is considering awarding a major project funded by american taxpayers to a foreign company. you see, when the buy-american statute is waived the requirement that american material be used is null and void. and so what this bill says is that when the fhwa provides public notice that they are considering waiving the buy-america clause for a particular project, that they include in that public notice a consideration of the impact on american jobs. it's worth knowing whether a waiver is simply going to result in the loss of ten american jobs or the loss of 500 american jobs, and this amendment very simply says that when a waiver to the buy-america law is pending, that we should know from the department of transportation and from fhwa
21 months. the confederates were confined to the sort of defensive warfare that they could least afford. after gettysburg, the sun never shone for the south again. but there were other costs for the confederacy imposed by gettysburg beyond the simple fact that defeat and discouragement and disarmament. the army of northern virginia reported 2592 killed, 12,700 would, and 4150 captured or missing after gettysburg. 20,451 casualties in all based on the data that we have collected by the army of northern virginia is chief medical officer, lafayette deal. i see alexander webb has come back. that's encouraging. but the mouse i was going to click has not. [laughter] [applause] >> powerful little thing, isn't it. there is our numbers. they look even worse in cold print. given the inadequacy of military record-keeping in the civil war, there were, for instance, no grace or registration years. these losses suffered by the army of northern virginia may have been even higher than these official figures. but even beyond the simple numerical shock of the casualty lists, lee's army suffered a
defense of the united states and think of those channels. think of those challenges that they met. are we so small that we can only look at our facebook likes today in this chamber? or are we going to stand up and find out how many lives we can save. let us get back to the big politics of protecting america and moving america forward. soundly reject this amendment, let's do this right on the authorization bill. the chair: the gentleman's time has expire. the gentleman from florida reserves. mr. young: i reserve. the chair: the gentleman from ichigan is recognized. mr. amash: i yield two minute -- one minute to the gentleman from michigan, mr. conyers. the chair: the gentleman is recognized for one minute. mr. conyers: ladies and gentlemen of the house, this amendment will not stop the proper use of the patriot act and fisa authorities to conduct terrorism and intelligence investigations. i've never block -- i'd never block that. all this amendment is intended ongoing to curtail the dragnet collection and storage of the personal records of innocent americans. it does not defund the n.s.a.
for managing park concessionaires so much of model used by the defense department and its base exchanges and recreational facilities and to pursue bonding and revolving loans. i would like to mention fenty the significant impact of sequestration from the budgetary cuts to the national park service and its related bureaus. sequestration was designed to be inflexible damaging and indiscriminate and it is. it is undermining the work we need to do one or many fronts. it's increasing increasing our backlogs and eroding our workforce and differing important work. to conclude the national park service will continue to pursue new and creative ways to address its funding needs and i want to thank our many partners who are here who have come to us with these ideas and i appreciate the support of congress to resolve this extraordinary challenge. thank you. >> director jarvis thank you very much. because of the numbers of senators here i'm just going to ask one question of director jarvis to get us started and recognize my colleagues. director jarvis or decades the park service has recommended expan
killed off the little guy competition. both companies have sizable defense businesses while defense orders in the future may be slowing, there's very little competition for these contracts. hey, we know that from lockheed martin, which reported a marvelous number, and it has a stock that simply won't quit. or northrup grumman like we promoted last night on "off the charts." going higher. the defense names are the strongest stocks in this market this year. sequester? no competition. how about the railroads like csx and union pacific? monster good numbers. the rails, they don't compete. they raise prices routinely when contracts roll over. that is a fantastic business. let's talk health care. united health groups dazzled the dow. why? because these health maintenance companies have to -- well, to look -- i think they stopped competing on price. it's like they carved up the whole country. johnson & johnson posted terrific numbers. patent protection made that possible. no competition. but do you know who has the least competitive marketplace versus the old days? wow, is this a change. a
, they are not necessary. the law of self-defense worked well for years and years an years. and i think there is a determination, and i was proud that both the attorney general and the president, as well as many others, have commented -- john mccain's words that these laws should be reviewed -- were also welcome, that there is a growing consensus that these laws are inconsistent with safe communities. our own poll shows race relations are, 50% of whites think race relations are fairly or very good, but only 38% of african-americans. you think that that's the impact of the verdict, partly? >> there's no doubt that the verdict has had an impact. it's, to some extent, affected people's confidence in the criminal justice system. i think that we've seen conflict and a lot of of tough language being played out indeed in the media. i remain optimistic and hopeful that reasonable minds, that people who are ready to understand that while we've come a great distance when it comes to race and race relations in this nation, in the 21st century there is a lot of unfinished work and that we've got to

as well as the defense team. what was perhaps getting a head line is the amount of discovery, the evidence the government has at this point as it is building its case for trial and discussion of wiretaps. wiretaps were crucial in the conviction of raj rajaratnam from galion and the insider-trading case. in this case wiretaps, no mention of richard lee, vaughn man who is cooperating with the government, who came from another hedge fund, quoted in the indictment as being part of an insider-trading circle, the hedge fund from which he came, denied there is an insider trading circle at their office but the bottom line is we are in the beginning of building the case and the government has to put up or for lack of a better term shut up and what they put up will include those wiretaps. we did get a quick chance to ambush the attorneys as they came out to see if they would explain why stephen cohen has not been charged, how he feels about that, the spirits of the people at sac because that is a term that will be doing business civitan with a lot of people withdrawing money. >> are the spirits of t

that could discredit a key witness who helped convict ingmar guandique of levy's death. defense attorneys have said they intend to request a new trial based on the information. levy's 2001 disappearance became international news after she was romantically linked with then- modesto rep. gary condit. eight people, including three children, were injured after an explosion shook this south philadelphia neighborhood late saturday morning. one home was destroyed and two others were heavily damaged. neighbors pitched in to help rescue those inside the homes. witnesses explains what happened. >>:"i saw the whole house was down. i saw the house next to it was falling over. i saw firemen. this dude was burnt up. they were hosing him down with the fire hose." "he was running out of the house with burn marks from head to toe. he was bleeding from his side and he was just asking for help." after more than an hour of searching, rescuers determined no one else was trapped under the rubble. fire officials confirming it was a natural gas explosion. and their search for a cause now centers on work being do
bulger wants the jury at his trial cut off from media, their homes and their families. defense attorneys filed a motion to have the jury sequestered. they claim that all the bad press about their client will influence the jury's decision. bulger faces a sweeping racketeering indictment that includes allegations that he participated in 19 murders. >>> anthony weiner is vowing to continue his run for new york city's mayor despite his latest setback. his campaign manager resigned after weiner admitted to steamy chats after he resigned in congress. he spoke out after visiting a church in brooklyn. >> no campaign is ever easy. you want this tough job, you have to be prepared to do the tough things. i'm betting that people are more interested in hearing solutions to their problems than hearing about things in my background. and we'll see if that's the case. >> weiner's chief rival in the case christine quinn also says that he is not qualified to lead the city. >>> well, straight ahead, here is a loaded question for you. how do you make $53 million in diamonds and jewels disappear into thin air
defenses, don't you think this is something that we can pour not only in defense but other areas as well? i believe it is. texas can switch to a p.b.m. contract. this is no chump change. y time draws to a close, the challenges facing independent and community pharmacist are great, but the important roles they play are greater. it is where we can look forward to solutions that matter. i did not come to washington, d.c. simply to watch things happen and to wonder why. i came to be part of the solution. like you, mr. speaker, we are part of the freshman class believing that this is the place that people look for to make this country continually the greatest country on earth. and the way they do that is look at commonsense legislation. they look at commonsense solutions that affect them every day. for many, many people. and especially in my home of northeast georgia. place.harmacies is a they are the places where senior citizens come and as i have watched many times the pharmacies where i go to, my own or not, it is the pharmacies where i watched the other day, where i went in and a sweet littl
the constitution says they have to have a defense that we can't afford apparently? i met yesterday with maryland district court judges, about eight of them, and they raised this issue as one of critical importance and one of the judges, a reagan appointee, was obviously very animated at how we were undermining the very essence of the judicial system. surely no one on this floor intends to do that. at the defense department 650,000 vifflian workers are already -- civilian workers are already being furloughed two days a month. that's an effective cut and pay by 20%. the hardworking people whom we rely to maintain the national security of our country. on july 2 i visited with pax ian defense works from and talked with those who were forced to stay at home without pay. they were concerned about their family's finances but, mr. speaker, these hardworking and patriotic public servants were far more worried about support for our troops on the field on friday when many are forced to stay at home. they can't legally come to work and volunteer their time. the sequester is hurting morale and putting our na
. budgetary time of austerity, w.i.c. was included in the across-the-board cuts in defense and discretionary programs under sequester. snap was excluded because it's a entitlement like social security and medicare. but w.i.c. was included in the sequester because it is an sniment. as if the cuts in sequester weren't bad enough, the house agriculture appropriations bill now cuts the program even further by more than $500 million. the 7.3% cut to w.i.c. in this bill could result in over 200,000 pregnant mothers and infants losing nutritious food. even factoring in the reserve fund, 55,000 moms and kids will go without nutrition that they need. it is sad that the republican-controlled house of representatives is cutting vital health and development programs for pregnant and nursing mothers and their very young children, while at the same time they find billions of dollars to send overseas in a wasteful war in afghanistan. madam speaker, during my series of end hunger now speeches, there's been one unifying theme i believe puts us on the path to end hunger now. that theme is presidential leaders
this week for the defense appropriations bill. are you working on a similar proposal with democrats and republicans in the senate? working am definitely with democrats and republicans to overhaul this program dramatically. there have been a number of discussions already. senators on both sides of the aisle -- the discussions have certainly accelerated since that extraordinary house vote. thelready have a quarter of united states senate on record saying that they are very interested in pursuing the issues that are central about this debate. to answer your question, yes we are going to see a very strong and bipartisan effort in the senate to pick up the effort up that i think needlessly intrudes on the privacy and liberties of millions of law-abiding americans. newsmakers with senator ron wyden. we have a replay at 6 p.m. eastern. mike is hanging on from elizabeth, new jersey, an independent caller. is america becoming a defeatist nation? caller: no, but our government is defeating us. span had a video back in 2008. no one really listens to it. it is a pretty simple solution. one solu

passed important legislation, the defense appropriations bill. this bill prohibits furloughs on employees serving our department of defense in fiscal year 2014. these employees are now in their third week of furloughs. this week we heard from undersecretary of defense comptroller bob hale about the adverse impacts which are expected to worsen if furloughs continue. his message made clear the harm furloughs have already had on our force readiness. mr. wittman: he echo what had i am hearing from my constituents who i talk to on a daily basis. these people are dispointed and frustrated they cannot support the war fighter and are fearful of an unknown future. while it may be too late for the 11 days of furlough through september, congress has the opportunity, and i believe the obligation, to get this important provision, prohibiting furloughs, signed into law as soon as possible. and i urge the senate to join the house in passing this important measure. and with that, mr. speaker, i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. for what purpose does t

do you say to that defense, sir? >> part of it is i'm not totally sure where those numbers come from. they may be accurate but when we visited the facilities, when we talked to people who work in these facilities, they describe scenes more like this. like one person, two people, a few people working on a shift. not lots of folks. and you know, for example, in a trial that occurred in northern california, the testimony in the trial, the documents produced in the trial was that in one of the memory care units, there was nobody on staff on certain nights. in the memory care unit where the woman died in texas, there was one person on duty, on staff according to police reports. that's more the kind of thing we've heard about. >> john: tonight, 48 years to the day after president johnson signed the social security amendments into law which provide for medicaid and medicare. i don't know if you know about that coincidence but i would like to ask before we go, what should people look for and what are some warning signs when they seek to place an elder loved one into a care facility like this
